This form is required by US Citizenship and Immigration Services and
MUST be returned to HR in person within the
first three days of employment, along with identification from either List A
OR List B AND C.
of Residency - Employers in PA are required to withhold applicable
earned income tax from employees. We need to know what
township/municipality/school district you live in so that your local income tax
can be distributed to the correct taxing authorities. Employers are required to
deduct the greater of either your resident tax (where you live) OR the
employee's nonresident tax (where you work). You will need to know the 6-digit
Political SubDivision Code (PSD) that is used to identify the municipalities and
school districts for each tax collection district. A current list
of PSD codes may be found on our website.
Deposit Form - Your pay will be direct deposited to any bank in the
continental USA. Your first pay will be a regular check mailed to your home
address. Please include a VOIDED check so that no error is made in your account
number or bank routing number.
Services Tax - People employed in the state of Pennsylvania are
required to pay a maximum $52 Local Services Tax. This tax may be used for
police, fire or emergency services; road construction or maintenance; or for the
reduction of property taxes. Each municipality sets their own rate, between $10
and $52. No person will pay more than $52 in any calendar year, regardless of
how many Pennsylvania employers they have. Dickinson College's LST is $52. If
you pay an LST of $10 and transfer to a municipality where the rate is higher,
you will have to pay the difference.
